May 142012

There are few places in the world more dangerous for a reporter to cover corruption, drug trafficking and crime than Mexico. Knight International Journalism Fellow Jorge Luis Sierra, who works in both Mexico and Panama, offers training and advice on how to stay safe despite the dangers. Sierra teaches an online class, part of a series of courses offered by the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas and featured in a recent blog. Through his efforts and the efforts of others, more than 100 Mexican journalists have taken part in this safety training.
